months at the Club I have heard Members and guests rave about everything from the special events to the greens and the resounding theme has been that CRCC is simply “The BEST.” At our Fifth Annual Food & Wine Festival new Member John O’Flaherty told me that he is beyond impressed with the staff at the Club; from the moment he steps on property everyone addresses him by name and offers their assistance. A prospective member who had just played the course and also attended the food and wine event said “. . . you really do everything right, I am very impressed and excited to join!” Overall, it has been your feedback that has led to these comments. We are always continually working on improving our services and amenities so that they match what you need (and exceed your expectations!), and the way we are able to do this is through your comments and suggestions. As always, we welcome you to let us know how

we are doing and greatly appreciate you taking the time to do so. As we head into February, we wish all of our golf and tennis players good fortune as the Club Championships get underway and the best of the best are subsequently determined. In this issue you will also see events ranging from our savory Seafood Buffet to our much anticipated Far Niente, Nickel & Nickel Wine Dinner; from the Tennis Valentine’s events to the Golf MemberGuests. Be sure to make your reservations early. We look forward to seeing you and your family, friends and business associates enjoying the Club! The BEST Clubs are characterized by enthusiastic Members who invite their friends to share in their memorable Club moments. At Coral Ridge, the excitement of Members has clearly expanded to friends and family which has created a continuous flow of prospective Members that have heard “you have to join Coral Ridge.” We thank you for promoting your Club and for being so welcome to new Members that are looking to become a part of the Coral Ridge Family.

HEAD GOLF PRO

Winter Play is in Full Swing Excessive cart traffic can have a detrimental effect on the quality of the playing surfaces. To reduce damage caused by golf carts, please always keep the following guidelines in mind when playing: 1) Golf carts should be parked on the cart paths around tees and greens at all times. Parking on the edges of the path, on the tee box, or too close to the green as shown in the pictures at right, is misuse and poor etiquette. 2) All carts should be kept at least 30 feet from the edges of greens to avoid damaging sensitive turf areas. 3) Carts should never be taken across excessively wet areas. 4) Adhere to directional signs and ropes. By following these guidelines, the best playing conditions will be maintained for all.

R E S E RVAT I O N C A N C E L L AT I O N P O L I C Y Special event and holiday dining are popular events that sell out and require the purchase of special food and beverage products, equipment, entertainment, etc. Last minute un-replaced cancellations (including changes to the party number) are unfair to those Members who are turned away due to full capacity and cause the Club to incur unnecessary expenses if the reservation is not replaced. As a result, the Club must exercise a firm enforcement of the special event and holiday dining policy. Reservations for special events or holiday dining may be canceled with no penalty 72 hours or more prior to the event starttime. If the reservation is canceled anytime in the 72 hours before the event start-time, then 100 percent of the event price will be charged to the Member account. However, there will be no penalty if the canceled reservation is replaced by the Club from the wait list or otherwise, but the Club is not obligated to do so. Thank you for your understanding and compliance.
